The ‘Ice Princess’ is an image Alexandra Kendall has cultivated for the last five years to bury the pain of a heart shattered into a million pieces. She is so far removed from the shy young woman in blue jeans and tie-dye, she barely recognizes herself.
Cole Whittaker would never let anyone or anything interfere with a mission. He is a sniper for the FBI, and focus is what keeps him alive, but in one night his focus is shot to smithereens, and he has yet to recover.
Alex has tried for five long years to forget the beautiful ice blue eyes of Cole, but it only takes the closing of hers for everything to come rushing back. How is she supposed to concentrate enough to win the contract in Belize if he is to be her bodyguard? The only answer is to get him out of her system once and for all. Then she can finally move on.
Fury and passion go head to head in Every Breath You Take. Alex and Cole are as tender and loving as they are raw and abrasive. Alex especially is a little hard to take in the beginning; her iciness is rather off-putting, but she does redeem herself eventually. Both Alex and Cole have five years of lies and heartache to overcome, and with so much water under the bridge, can they ever get past the hurt? The emotional swings are dizzying, and will keep you captivated right up until the end.
